What is a treasure that’s been lost?
Losing a friendship is often very difficult and I think we all experience this at some point in our life. To me, friendships are treasures and it is often a big treasure that is lost when it ends.
Losing a friendship is a bit hard for me to think about. I have never been great at making friends but I have had a few friends that I thought would always be there that are no longer here. That sucks. I am to blame here really but it doesn’t make it any easier to think back on. If I had just done a better job at communicating with them, would things be different? I tend to isolate myself when things are overwhelming. What if I was more vulnerable and let them in?
I think back on all of the different friendships I have had that helped me get through very different points in my life. I am thankful.
Of all possessions, a friend is one of the most precious. Nurture and invest in the friendships you value.
A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often – just to save it from drying out completely.
